THE BALDENING

Fri March 16 at 4:00 PM, Fado Irish Pub
100 W Grand Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
You may remember this question. The time has come for me and misskaz to have our heads shaved for St. Baldrick's with the team name you helped us pick.
We think it may be pretty packed, but if you'd like to come out and support us, that would be really cool. There will also be drinking. Our shave time is 5:15.

UPDATE: we are still baldening at 5:15, and we will be on the downstairs stage. (2 stages and 6 slots every 15 minutes. SO MANY BALD PEOPLE! :D)

I can't come to this because I'll be in New Zealand, but I would very much appreciate someone recording a video and posting it on the internet.

Well, look at that - post #1001. A bald zero for each of you!

Cool, I can probably be there by 4:45, maybe earlier.

I was totally planning on being there.

This will have to be an "add photos" occasion.

I'm going to try really hard to be there, but that means going in to work at 7 that morning. Even if I can't go, my money is there - we were at Fado after dinner last Saturday and I donated some dollars for MeFiChi.

I may have to miss out. I just found out I'll be testing buildings at U of C that day, and likely won't make it back across the city in time. Take many pictures!

Say hi to the monkeys and crocs on the side of Stuart for me!

I forgot my camera at home, dang it. Does anyone else plan to document this? I could possibly bring a camera from work.

Working from home today, so don't think I'll make it down. But look forward to seeing the pictures (or at least a few weeks/months of growth sometime soon.)

Is there an after-baldening party planned? Kay can't make it for the shave but wants to meet up afterward. I assume Fado is going to be a complete madhouse.

My going-in-to-work-early plain was a miserable failure, so it looks like I can't make it for the shave. Boo.

I can make it! and am on my way!

I've got my phone's camera and a point-and-shoot. There shall be documentation.

We are at 3 tables in the back corner by the bathrooms, FYI

Here is me and Misskaz as soon as we were done.

There were A MILLION ZILLION cameras, I can't wait to see what all gets posted.

You can tell that you're having a great time. Congratulations on exceeding your fundraising goal. I hadn't heard of the organization before now and I'm excited to look into forming a team next year, so thanks!

There is video.

I want to see a sped-up, reversed version of that video.

Yesterday one of our student workers showed up with a shaved head. She was at Fado the same time we were!
